Sounds like the habitat is correct. Here is a link that might help you:

Subject: [VTBIRD] Kestrals
I am hoping that someone on this list will be able to give some advice.
Since moving to this farm several years ago I have been looking for
Kestrals to no avail. It seems to me that the habitat is perfect......
lots of open fields. Probably 20+ acres. I have thought of putting up
a Kestral house but considering the trouble it would be to put one up
I'd like to be a bit more sure that my habitat is right. Can anyone
give me some habitat guidance?
So, if my habitat is Kestral friendly does anyone have plans for a
Kestral house? The only one I know of is mounted on a telephone pole in
the meadow behind Berkshire Community College in Pittsfield, MA.
Quite frankly the thought of rounding up a telephone pole and then
trying to put it up is a bit daunting. Plus, having it up so high
would make it near impossible to clean.
There must be a better way!!
